Neighbours is returning to the screen: Take a look at the shocking moments on Ramsay Street

We were hooked by the weddings, fatalities, and cliffhangers.

For more than three decades, we have chronicled the lives of those who reside on Ramsay Street.
No other neighbourhood could have experienced as many surprising changes and turns, from characters coming back from the dead to horrible incidents.
We had assumed that Neighbours would end its 37-year run in July 2022.
Australia’s renowned drama series will be revived, according to Channel Ten, and will premiere on Amazon FreeVee and Prime Video in early 2023.

The show’s Twitter account stated in March 2022 that it was “very sad to say that after nearly 37 years and around 9000 episodes broadcast we have to confirm that Neighbours will cease production in June.”
“We simply have no choice but to rest the show following the loss of our important broadcast partner in the UK and despite a thorough hunt for alternative funding,” the statement continued.
We understand that this is a big disappointment for our wonderful, devoted supporters, as it is for the entire team. We appreciate all of your comments and encouragement, and we pledge to end the programme with a bang. We will now be honouring our neighbours.
When Channel Five in the UK, the show’s major financial sponsor in recent years, declared that it would not renew the programme after this upcoming British summer, the long-running soap was first speculated to be coming to an end.
The network issued a statement saying, “We recognise that this decision will cause sadness, but our present focus is on increasing our investment in original UK drama, which has a significant appeal for our viewers.

Toadie and Dee wed in the end: Even though Toadie (Ryan Moloney) walked down the aisle multiple times over the years, his wedding to Dee in 2003 stands out as the most memorable (Madeleine West). Shortly after the wedding, the couple’s joy was short-lived when their car ran off the road, leaving Dee at sea.

Drew and Libby exchange vows: The stereotypical girl next door had grown up. When Libby (Kym Valentine) married the incredibly likeable Drew, she had at last met her prince charming (Dan Paris). Drew honoured his Scottish roots by donning a kilt for their 2001 wedding, while Libby’s proud father Karl led her down the aisle (Alan Fletcher).

The most romantic TV wedding ever is between Scott and Charlene: In 1987, the crazy-in-love couple Scott (Jason Donovan) and Charlene (Kylie Minogue) married. Despite having a tumultuous relationship because of their familial disputes, the two eventually got married. One of the most viewed TV highlights of the decade was their intimate church wedding.

Donna and Ringo wed: bride For her wedding in 2010, Donna (Margot Robbie) came in style—in the back of a police cruiser! After being stopped for speeding to her wedding in the back of a ute, she decided to take a ride with the police. The pink Cinderella dress Donna wore to her wedding to Ringo (Sam Clark) was dubbed “really fairytale” by Margot.

Death of Madge Bishop Madge (Anne Charleston), a longtime Ramsay Street resident, passed away in 2001 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. In the arms of her devoted husband Harold (Ian Smith), the matriarch of the Bishop family passed away at home. In 2014, Madge briefly reappeared when she showed up in one of Harold’s dreams.

Death of Helen Daniels: Helen (Anne Haddy), a beloved Neighbours character, passed away in 1997 after an illness. Anne had been playing the role for more than ten years at that point. In the heartwarming scenes, Helen was watching a DVD of Charlene (Kylie Minogue) and Scott’s (Jason Donovan) wedding on the couch with friends when she passed away after being discharged from the hospital.

Accident involving Drew Kirk: Dan Paris, a young husband and father, died in 2002 from injuries sustained after he fell from a horse. When wife Libby (Kym Valentine) performed “Wild Mountain Thyme” during his funeral, not a dry eye could be found in the church. Drew had performed the same song for her at their previous wedding celebration.

An iconic figure from Australian television made a comeback when Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) showed up in Erinsborough after a five-year hiatus. Harold vanished in 1991 and was thought to have gotten lost at sea. But in 1996, he came back. He had amnesia, it was discovered, and had been working with the Salvation Army while he established a new life.

That horrifying plane accident: In 2005, Neighbours planned an explosive storyline that included a jet crash over Bass Strait to commemorate the show’s 20th anniversary. The main character regulars David (Kevin Harrington), Liljana (Marcella Russo), and Serena Bishop were killed when the jet was destroyed when a bomb exploded in the air and crashed into the water (Lara Sacher).

Karl Kennedy’s affair: One of the most enduring plots in Neighbours was the scandalous affair that upended the Kennedy marriage, which received substantial coverage in TV WEEK. Karl (Alan Fletcher) confessed to wife Susan (Jackie Woodburne) in 1998 that he had an affair with Sarah, a coworker (Nicola Charles). One of the most well-known episodes from the drama was Susan’s subsequent reaction, in which she slapped Karl.
